I’ve been discussing Syria for some time on Facebook. Here is a recent exchange.

Hector V. said: “I want to know your opinion of syria. DO you believe all this is a zionist conspiracy as they say? what do you think is the goal of the United states? what do you think will happen? thank you for your work.”

My response: It is clear that there have been multinational cabals of elitists who have been playing chess, so to speak, with the common people-pawns since time immemorial. I believe we always need to keep that fact in mind.

My previous posts on Facebook have demonstrated that I am mightily against U.S. military involvement in this morass. Iran backs Assad because Syria has many Shiites, while the Saudis are interested in Sunni hegemony. It’s the same cultic internecine warfare since Islam was created.

But even before that, Syria was an embattled land soaked with blood, dating back thousands of years. Long ago, during the third millennium BCE, the Amurru kingdom full of tribes of violent brigands (Amorites) inhabited a significant portion of the region. These violent marauders went on to destroy the Sumerian culture, while taking its gods and religious ideas. In the Mesopotamian region, these Amorites became the Babylonians.

From there, over time they migrated around the Levant, eventually ending up in the Samaritan and Judean hills, where they emerged as “Israelites” during the Iron Age, beginning around 1200 BCE.

In any event, the warfare in the Levant/Near East continued for centuries – in fact, it’s never ended. We are simply in yet another phase. The reason there are so many “strong men” tyrants in the region is because it is constantly engaged in warfare. Of course, that’s a chicken-and-egg proposition.

In any event, constant warfare for at least the past 5,000 years hardly bodes well for any engagement in the region.

There is no way in hell, however, that anyone interested in freedom, democracy and equality should be backing the rebels in this fight, especially now that they’ve been thoroughly comprised by the multiethnic terrorist riff-raff of al Qaeda.

Oh, and as concerns the goal of the Obama Admin – I prefer to phrase it that way, since I am part of the “U.S.” but am certainly NOT involved in this warmongering – I think the massive natural gas deposit supposedly discovered not long ago is a major reason for ALL the sharks circling the region.

HUGE Natural Gas field found in or near Syria right BEFORE all this nonsense started

Note that someone claiming to be a petro geologist in the above forum asserts that the gas was not just found but has been known about for several years.

What do I think will happen? At this point, I really don’t know. I do know that many Christians will be motivated to fight because of the biblical “Gog-Magog” nonsense. Although that scenario is clearly biblical and hence “Zionist” in a sense, one should not focus solely on the desires of purported Zionists in this instance. What about the Iranian conspiracy? The Saudi conspiracy? The Russian conspiracy? The Syrian conspiracy with Russia and Iran?

There’s not just one player in this deadly game!
